5. Catalina Island Mountain Railway

In 1904 the “Catalina Mountain Railway” was constructed to take visitors from the Amphitheater to the top of the hill. Some would ride the incline simply to see the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean while others would ride for lunch at the Inn. Catalina actually had 2 incline railways; the second was at the top to take you down to Pebbly Beach.
